Youth Sports

The mission of the Recreational Youth Sports Program is to provide an enjoyable experience for each youth participant, while developing character, skills, sportsmanship, perseverance, responsibility and a healthy future.

The City of Long Beach Youth Sports Program is free to all participants and consists of a variety of sports opportunities throughout the year for boys and girls ages 5-14 years. Participants register individually and are placed on teams at Long Beach parks. Each season consists of six games with no playoffs. Emphasis is placed on participation and skill development.

We promise to provide each participant the opportunity:

  • For a fun, safe, positive environment in which to participate
  • To participate under the supervision of positive role models that will help focus on developing skills, teamwork, sportsmanship and how to win and lose graciously
  • For each participant to play regardless of skill or ability
  • To build self-confidence and self-esteem while respecting oneself and others
  • To develop self discipline, responsibility, leadership and the desire to succeed
  • To build friendships
  • To continue to improve and enhance the quality of your youth sports experience
